More birthday news…

Hello to all of you!  I hope your Monday morning is off to a great start!  I just can’t wait to tell you guys about my fun weekend and the great birthday presents that arrived a little bit late………but they were SO worth the wait! 

My special girlfriend Charley, that moved to Phoenix a few years ago, sent me a fabulous package on Saturday.  It was full of several small gifts — personalized notepads in a cute miniature tote, magnetic notepads with Christian quotes on them, and a keyring with a cute “friend” saying!!!  It was so fun to get something special from a far-away friend.  Thanks Charley!!!!  I love you!!!!

Then on Saturday afternoon, my friend Ronda came over with a gift and a fruit pizza!  It was about 100 degrees outside and this “cool” treat really hit the spot.  The whole family enjoyed this light and tasty snack!  She brought me an adorable card with a gift certificate for a DELUXE PEDICURE inside!  Oh, and $5 for the tip!!!  How thoughtful was that???  Here is a photo of our visit….

But I am not done yet…….then I left and went out to eat with some of my “bestest” girlfriends…….we are all scrapbooking buddies.  We have known each other for about 10 years — you know the kind of girlfriend that knows everything about you and still loves you anyway????  That’s us!  We went to Texas Roadhouse and had a delicious dinner and laughed so hard my face hurt when the evening was over.  We stayed in this one booth for at least 2 hours, and I am sure the waitress wanted us to leave!  We eventually left and went to Cold Stone Creamery to continue laughing and talking some more.  But the funniest thing happened.  They each brought me a card and inside was a $10 Gift Card to Brookshire’s……..each card had another gift card in it!  So now, thanks to my dear husband, I have enough gift cards to buy a whole bill of groceries!  It was the funniest thing ever — such a cruel, yet funny joke!  Thanks gals!!!!  I love you to death!  Here we are…

So, I am really thankful for girlfriends!!!  They helped to make up for my disappointments on the ACTUAL day of my birthday………and lots of people have given Charles grief over his not-so-good gifts!   I have lots of Stampin’ surprises for you later today.  We have new specials, a new stamp set that is being offered as a sneak peek into the new catalog, and I have new samples I have worked on using that set!!!

Stay tuned and check back later today for new stuff.  Nothing more about my birthday, I promise to stop now!

    What was Charles thinking? I am always telling people you have the most wonderful, sweet hubby who seems so helpful… guess he had to have a little flaw… lol! Oh, well, we’ll forgive him and show him the way to the Hallmark store next year.

    Love reading your blog… take care!
